Science on Tap talk explores the neuroscience of love and pleasure

Love, infatuation, commitment and addiction — the brain chemistry involved in these four experiences may have more in common than you think.

How does neurochemistry affect your behavior around the people and things you love? Find out at the March 2017 Science on Tap talk.

To learn more about that chemistry and what neuroscientists know regarding how the brain sorts pleasure from discomfort, check out the March 18 Science on Tap event, featuring Oregon Health and Science University neuroscientist Larry Sherman.

Sherman’s talk, “The Neuroscience of Pleasure,” will outline how neurochemical changes in the brain can affect our behavior, including who, what and how we love.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. in Alberta Rose Theater. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Cost is $15 general admission or $10 for students with ID.

For tickets and more information, go to the event page on Via Productions’ website. Via produces the Science on Tap series.
